I finally had my dinner soup late this evening after I went to my very first Xtend Barre class that my sweet babooh gave me as a groupon gift a few months ago. Love, love, love this work out. Was much more "dance-y" than the other barre type classes I've tried out before. Even though I was one of the older people there I made it through the entire class and still feel pretty energetic later in the evening. I didn't even have my usual guilty pleasure of a mid day diet coke. This is pretty major for me - so I'm thinking there is something to this extra energy rumor when eating a raw diet. I may not be able to walk tomorrow but I will definitely go back in the very near future. Here's a link to a video about .Xtend Barre For those not interested in the exercise you'll probably enjoy the hot looking women in leotards.
Last savory soup for the day is Marvelous Minestrone. No surprise there are tomatoes in this soup. This time I actually remembered to put them in! Hence the light red color. In addition to the tomatoes we have miso, celery and garlic as well as some cayenne and oregano. At first I thought I went way overboard with the pepper but it really, really grew on me. One thing I tried with this soup to avoid was having a bunch of little bits floating around unemulsified, was to let it settle for a bit and then reprocess. I don't know if it really had a huge effect but I didn't find anything at all chunky in this glassful of tomato-y smoothness. So - I would give this a solid B, you might like it better if you love having a spicy after taste.
